Student Success Center

The mission of the Student Success Center is to provide an innovative, constantly evolving program employing sound educational principles to help La Verne Law students achieve their highest academic potential by cultivating and enhancing their academic skills. We accomplish this mission by:

  • strengthening students’ confidence, ability and self-efficacy;
  • helping students develop and practice critical academic and legal skills; and
  • guiding students through the process of becoming self-regulated learners.

By developing and practicing critical academic and legal skills, students create a strong foundation to succeed in law school, on the bar exam, and in the practice of law.

About The Student Success Center

La Verne Law established the Student Success Center as a resource to help La Verne Law students identify and strengthen critical academic and bar exam skills during law school.  SSC faculty teach an array of academic/bar exam skills including LAP I (New Student Skills Orientation), 1L academic skills for Contracts, Property, and Civil Procedure, 2L Strategic Legal Methods, and the 3L/4L Capstone. In addition to formal classes, SSC faculty are available to work one on one with students on study skills, time management, outlining, and exam techniques.  Through its academic and bar readiness programs, the SSC supports and collaborates with students as they develop and enhance the critical skills necessary for achievement in law school, on the bar exam, and in the legal profession.
